We had a lovely weekend with the beautiful Miss Jennifer.
On Saturday we ventured into Boston with high hopes of seeing the city from 350 feet up. We found an interesting opportunity to take a Helium Balloon ride up above Boston Common. We were excited to go up in a balloon (a first time for all three of us), but the weather was working against us. It was too windy to be safe.
To assuage our disappointment we headed over to the South End for dinner at b.good. Peter has been wanting to try it for a while and this seemed like a good time. Peter and I had burgers and Jenn enjoyed an Oriental Chicken sandwich. YUM. Check it out the next time you’re on Dartmouth Street.
Our appetite for sky-high views was still strong after dinner so up to the Skywalk at the top of the Prudential Tower. I hadn’t been up there in a few years and they’ve added a few things: an audio tour that gives a guide to the sights and exhibits from the now defunct Dreams of Freedom Museum. I love being above the city!
From the 50th floor we could see the Hatch Shell. It looked as if they were testing the lights. We wondered what kind of concert would be taking place so we strolled through the back bay to find out. From several blocks away we could hear the main act…and Peter made a guess as to who it was. And, amazingly, was correct. So, who do we hear?
None other than Jesse McCartney!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! We enjoyed Jesse in Summerland but as a singer he’s a little too teeny bopper for me. Nonetheless, we stuck around for a few songs and had fun watching the 12 year old girls having the time of their lives.
Phew! What an afternoon!!!
p.s. You can see all of the day’s pics here.
